How do you approach the design process?

“By nature, I love doing puzzles, conducting research and solving problems. When beginning a new project, I like to get to know the clients and the brand message. I try to relate to our clients personally to better understand their focus and passion. Paying attention to the body language they use to express their thoughts is often more telling that what they are verbalizing. The most successful projects happen when we interpret the client’s focus and brand to create the three-dimensional expression of a one-dimensional concept.”
